    Australia - Tyrell Cobb, 4, beaten to death, Gold Coast, 24 May 2009

    "Police investigating the death of a four-year-old boy on the Gold Coast in 2009 want to hear from neighbours at the time.

    Tyrell Cobb was found unconscious at a Biggera Waters residence in May of that year and later died in hospital.

    A murder charge against a 26-year-old man was withdrawn a year after Tyrell died.

    Today,*Detective Inspector Mark White said new information had come to light, although he would not say what it was.

    He said police were appealing for information from anyone residing at unit complexes where the boy had lived, at Biggera Waters"

    What happened to Tyrell Cobb?

    Police then believed his wounds were intentional, with a pathologist finding Tyrell died from "intra-abdominal injuries".

    More than 70 different injuries were found on his body, most of which were small bruises. Tyrell suffered internal bleeding and a severe abdominal injury the pathologist believed was caused by "blunt impact" from strong punches or an object.
    The pathologist said the wounds were likely sustained over a period of days and "collectively could not be typical of accidental injuries".
    Two U-shaped scars were also uncovered on Tyrell's legs, allegedly caused by the top end of a cigarette lighter.


    Tyrell Cobb death: Gold Coast 'killer' mum granted bail

    Supreme Court judge says there is no evidence to suggest a mother was physically involved in the murder and torture of her son six years ago.
    Heidi Strbak, 32, was charged by police in August with the murder of son Tyrell Cobb, who died in 2009 at the Gold Coast.
    Her former partner Matthew Scown, 32, has also been charged with murder and torture.
    However Ms Strbak was granted bail in the Supreme Court on Wednesday, with Justice Peter Flanagan suggesting police would have a stronger case pursuing a manslaughter charge.

    That evidence was later confirmed to police by Strbak’s brother, Danial Allan, who claimed the boy said: “(Scown) punched me in the tummy”.

    A few hours later Tyrell was dead.

    During the investigation, police intercepts claim to catch Strbak admitting in a phone conversation to her other brother, Bradley Allan, that she lied when giving her original statement to police.

    She allegedly asked her brother whether she should alter the statement in case the truth came out in court.

    Police claim he advised against it.

    “You’ve lied half your life,” Strbak’s brother allegedly replied. “You know how to lie.”

    Police claim Strbak agreed.

    Strbak has been released on conditional bail, including reporting conditions and a $100,000 surety. Her case is due to be mentioned in the Brisbane Magistrates Court again on November 9.

    "A four-year-old Gold Coast boy who died after allegedly being punched in the stomach could 'certainly have been saved' and would have been in severe pain for a number of hours, a court has been told.

    Tyrell Cobb was found unconscious at a Biggera Waters home on May 24, 2009, with 70 injuries on his body and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

    His mother Heidi Strbak, 33, and her ex-partner Matthew Scown, 33, face a committal hearing at Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday charged with murder."
